I am currently a junior at the University of Wisconsin-Madison studying psychology and social welfare. I am interested in how the interaction between environmental and genetic factors contributes to the development of individual differences and disorders. In the future, I hope to pursue a career in mental health counseling or social work where I can continue to advocate for mental health prevention and treatment and improve the health and well-being of others. I hope to use the knowledge gained from this lab to better understand the cause and course of various mental health and developmental disorders that I may encounter in my future career. In my free time, I enjoy exploring Madison and trying out new restaurants with my friends, reading, and watching TV.
